Overview


Kent County, Maryland, has retained its serene beauty and tradition despite the passage of time. Situated on a peninsula where the Chester and Sassafras Rivers meander into the Chesapeake Bay, Kent County boasts 209 miles of scenic shoreline. The rich history of the waterfront towns features the 1782 founding of Washington College, the only college named for George Washington with his express consent. Chestertown, the county seat, is home to
Emmanuel Church, where the name of the Protestant Episcopal denomination was proposed and adopted in 1780. Tolchester Beach’s many amusement rides will be remembered by generations of tourists and Kent
County residents.
